Did You Know?

When Gatekeeper asks Katya if she received her message last night, Katya responds that after she watched "Last Call" she stayed up all night to work on the advertisement. This is a reference to "Last Call with Carson Daily" a talk show starring the ex-MTV veejay who also happens to be Jennifer Love Hewitt's ex-boyfriend.See more »
Factual errors: When Katya and her two friends are in an Indian Cafe, her friend is seen with a hookah (shisha) pipe in the mouth. However, when the shisha is shown by the camera, the terra cota cup is open. To smoke a shisha, that cup should be filled with tobacco, then covered by an aluminum foil, and topped with burning coals.See more »
Eliza:Discussing your six-figure salary will only make him feel discontented with his lot.
Katya Livingston:He lives in a shack with no air conditioning, TiVo, or DSL. I don't think I could make him feel any more discontented than he already is.

A risqué little romcom that, nevertheless, has its moments, 25 January 2007
Author: Amy Adler from Toledo, Ohio

Katya (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is an advertising executive with an abundance of talent. However, she is prone to coming in late, taking early and long lunches, and pursuing personal interests while at work. Most importantly, she is driven to become a somebody in San Fran and is constantly searching for that rich, high-profile husband. Oh, and she is ruthless to those who stand in her way. On the elevator, she meets a dreamboat named Charles (Colin Ferguson) but plays it cool. In the meantime, she is fixated with getting an invitation to THE social event of the season. One day, again on the elevator, Charles stops the contraption and insists she have dinner with him. She accepts. That big spender, Charles, he takes her out to sit by a fountain and snack on hotdogs from the stand. Is this man really the stepping stone to her big plans to be the "it" girl of this season and of those to come? Doris Day fans, beware. You will probably enjoy this romantic comedy, as I did, but this is not your mother's romcom. It has some risqué ideas and situations that make it a bit of a walk on the wild side, at times. However, Hewitt is adorable and beautiful as the girl with a mission and Ferguson is quite a pleasure as the love interest. The script has some marked originality, which is always welcome, and the costumes and San Francisco setting are to be greatly enjoyed. If you decide to watch this film, do make sure teenage girls are not hovering over your shoulder. This is not a good choice for impressionable girls. But, for those adult romance fans, add this one to your viewing list, by all means. True love and happy endings are still what most of us live for and this movie delivers on this account, yes.
